The log of one man's quest for wind and sunshine



Way back in Brazil I had been invited to come stay with my friend Anna in Vejer de la Frontera in Andalucía.  She mentioned her family’s place was close to Tarifa — another one of those kite/windsurf meccas, so after much contemplation I decided to go.  This would be my first time ever visiting Spain.

Andalucía was fantastic (as was the rest of Spain).  The place has oodles of fresh seafood, lots of sunshine and great wind.  My only regret is I didn’t spend more time.   I took a day trip to Cádiz with my buddy Christiane, and enjoyed a spectacular sunset with amazing colors —  I tweaked the exposure on the harbor photos, but the rest is as shot.

The kiting was fun, and not to be ruined by a few equipment setbacks.  My favorite beaches were definitely Zahora and Los Caños de Meca near Trafalgar (where Nelson was killed) with beautiful water, lots of wind, and the Maroccan coast in the background.
